Hey all! Mod team of r/unixporn here. After a couple weeks of work on our end, we finally have a Lemmy community at LemmyWorld that we're committing to moderating in the long run. Additionally, due to Lemmy's federation, you should be able to crosspost between here and there even if you don't have an account on LemmyWorld. Hope to see you there!

On reddit when I reminded to other users that this community existed and they could move here you insisted to clarify that you're not moving on Lemmy and reminding that the only official communities are on reddit and on discord. Now you change your mind and we should start cross posting, for what? So we can have that mod team who tried to discredit this place, instead of this community which is perfectly fine? Hell no, you made your decision, now you deal with it.

I briefly checked the Reddit thread.
I'm not sure what your username there is, but I think you must be misunderstanding something; throughout all communication we were never opposed to a Lemmy community and kept hinting at "more platforms coming soon"

kept hinting at "more platforms coming soon"

The last time I checked, this wasn't happening at all. Otherwise I wouldn't have a reason to insist linking this community in the first place. Now I deleted my reddit account (my username was w0yak) so I have not checked and maybe the discussion has gone forward. In this case, I have no idea what has been said. But when I was on reddit and replying to users who were asking for another platform to move on, linking this community, the only hint I read from the mods was that they were aware that this community exists and that they wanted to remind to us that the only official one was that one on reddit and the one on Discord. I have never seen any other mentions of this community by the mods.

That being said, regardless of what happened there, as many users are saying this community already exists and there's nothing wrong at all with it, so I personally can't see any reason to duplicate it.

this subreddit and our discord server are our only official channels at the moment. [...] More may be coming soon

This (taken from the announcement) or similar phrasings were used everywhere. I apologize for any misunderstandings.
